Hi. Now I do want to mention one thing. You do see a certain layer 2 BG and you may want to convert it to layer 3 format. Teyla did specify BGs with layer 3 material, but for 1, perhaps 2 that I will upload, he didn't say that.
For this BG, some effort has been put into good use. While I wished there were more layer 3 palettes, I did manage it with 8 alone.
I also did this for 2 more people.
Anyway, I'll present you in LAYER 3 format:

Earthworm Jim SNES - New Junk City - layer 3

This is one I targeted, as it was quite easy to turn into a layer 3 BG, but the effort was a high one. I kept on doing this for days, but managed it. Here's the result:

You might still think it's layer 2. The bottom part I had to draw myself to properly connect it.
If you thought this is still layer 2, then check the screenshot below:

This layer 3 BG does use 291 tiles. I had to avoid certain tiles, since those repeat.

Normally, I'd be done with this, but I had to convert one last layer 2 BG to layer 3, since the colors the BG uses were 5 in total.
Not sure if another layer 2 BG can be converted to layer 3, but for now I think this one will do. Here's the BG I'm talking about:

Megaman & Bass - Burner Man - layer 3

This is the BG I aimed for this C3.
I should post its features:
-uses all layer 3 palettes: check. You'll need SMB3 status bar here;
-can be 512x512: check;
-made it quite close to the game: did some sacrifices. Still: check;
-comes with 3 ExGFX files+tilemap file: check;
-has its own .pal and .palmask files: check.

If you think New Junk City layer 3 used a lot of tiles, then this BG uses a bit more, totalling 301 8x8 tiles. Want to see the BG? Here:

I had to reduce the color of the big bushes, but still made it accurate to the original. Also, just to confirm it's layer 3:

You might be thinking almost all tiles are scrambled, but this is the result.

Feedback is appreciated.
It's really interesting just how far layer 3 can be pushed. This looks really nice.
oh, i love this actually. i've been too lazy to rip my own gfx for my hack, so i've used quite a few of the layer 3 / layer 2 rips you've been putting out. this is great! i'm excited to see what else you have prepared.

i can't claim to know much about layer 3, but i love this background and hope it gets used well!

Last BG has been uploaded. This took a lot of work for nomination.
Your stuff is fantastic. I will happily use your stuff in my hack, honestly.
Your layer 3 stuff always amaze me. Great job at them. Also, a special thanks to you, because of your layer 3 of Press Garden Zone 2 (Tree), my third level for the Kochobo Dourado 2 looks gorgeous. #smrpg{:3}
I think C3 will close. I have another thing to show.
You could consider this for an original tileset, but it's layer 3:

Yes, it's YI and uses 4 layer 3 palettes from palette 0.

Not sure if I can use this.
Love those Layer 3 BGs, Rykon!
Converting 4bpp BGs to Layer 3 has never been this easier!
Reporting for you for this year’s E3. Catch it on 6:00 PM PHT.

These look amazing Rykon!
Good job! #w{<3}
